Ocean Rowing

Since the first 12 "Historic Ocean rows" which were completed with limited equipment and no technology, rowing across oceans with no engine or sails has fascinated adventurers the world over.

Even with today's advances in technology and communication, rowing thousands of miles across a hostile environment from one continent to another in a small boat with no amenities, constantly being tossed around by waves, storms and gales has got to be one of the great challenges of all time.

Despite the odds, Max, Livar and Stuart did it!
Wecome to the fascinating world of Ocean Rowing.

Indian Ocean
Geraldton, Australia to Cap Malheureux, Mauritius
Distance : 6,500km
July / August 2013

The voyage begins north of Perth in Western Australia. It crosses the Indian Ocean, and ends in Mauritius - off the east coast of Africa. Nothing but relentless open water with no land in sight for 4,000 miles (6,500 km). Once the boat departs, it cannot turn back whatever the reason, as wind and current will prevent it from doing so. Maxime has chosen to lead a three-man team, which he believes boasts the greatest chances of success during tough adventures. His two teammates: Livar Nysted (Faroe Islands, Denmark aged 42) and Stuart Kershaw (UK, aged 33) have the necessary knowledge, skill, experience and will, for this crossing. Both have successfully rowed across the Atlantic and are eager to embark on this epic adventure.
